Dublin, Ireland 1911 Census OnlineEdit This Page

From FamilySearch Wiki

A census is a count of the population. Ireland began taking national-wide censuses in 1821 but most were destroyed before 1901. The 1901 and 1911 censuses are valuable because of the information they provide.

The 1911 census was taken on 2 April.
